Cervical Spine Research Society Asia Pacific Section CSRS - AP
Our society already has a 10-year history as a sister society of CSRS and CSRS-ES. Although this 10-year period is not so long, it has been a very challenging and meaningful decade. We have helped to overcome the differences in social climate and medical conditions among various countries in the Asia-Pacific region. And as everyone has noticed, our true friendship has matured during the past 10 years.
We welcome our colleagues to the 10th Anniversary Meeting of CSRS-AP to be held in Yokohama from March 14th to 16th in 2019. In this meeting, we would like you to keep the special phrase Unlocking Potential in your mind. We very much want all young Asian spine physicians to notice your potential/power/ability in the cervical spine field, and to have confidence. Open mind, original ideas, the spirit of never giving up: all of these are keys needed for us to continue advancing! We will try our hardest to make this memorable academic meeting serve as a bridge to the advances anticipated to be made in our field in the next decade. To ensure the success of this we are counting on the enthusiasm and participation of all of you.
